Description 

A great face and arete. Tricky start with thin feet and big moves. Pass this to a tricky and hard to read move off a ledge to some thin face. A hard move and tricky clip guards the anchors. Good rests save the day between the cruxes.

Location 

Between the trad routes Rock 'n Road and Up to Bat. To the right of the sport route Schmeming.

Protection 

8 Bolts + Anchors

The route was actually established and first climbed by Rick Smith and I. Although Josh has done more than his share of FA at Diablo.
